    A few months ago I said the Twins should try to sign Dempster for 2/22 to 2/25 with an option year. I would be willing to "overpay" for him at 2/30 with a 15 million option and 2 million buyout. Absolutely. The guy is NOT a 4 or 5 starter. How can anyone even say that? Maybe if you don't pay attention to stats and performance . . .

    Would you rather spend 6/120 for Greinke or 3/40 for Jackson and 3/20 for Marcum?

    The big name Pitchers (most of them) will not sign until Peavy gets his massive contract. That contract is going to shape most of the pitching market.

    I think most people just have an issue with 3 years guaranteed, he will be 38 by then. I would happily go along with the above suggestions, just not for 3 years, I think the risk of a precipitous decline in the 3rd is too great.

    Peavy?
    I'm willing to bet he meant Grienke.
